Today's Santa is the result of a suggestion from my upline when she saw all my Santas - "You need to make a Texas one". Keep in mind that she is a very talented Red Neck who shot her first deer this past weekend (Creeps me out but I bravely looked at all her photos. She looked cute in her camouflage - I tried not to look at Bambi's mama.)
You could add a Christmas Badge
And here is a close up of the boots (from the 5 point flower punch)
This may reflect parts of Texas but we live in the Dallas Ft.Worth area which is pretty darn urban. A Santa that reflects my area would be in the 34th street suit or wearing a baseball gimme cap, jeans and a Cowboy (football team) jersey.
I realize that many of you will never have need of a Texas Santa but maybe you can alter him a bit and make him a sheriff or a cowboy for some scrapbook layout. Or maybe you can just shake your head and hope for something better tomorrow.
I checked my email yesterday and there was one from the BEST NEIGHBOR I EVER HAD (who moved away to California) asking Do you know how to make evaporated milk? Now, she knows exactly what kind of cook I am, so either she sent this question to the wrong email address or it is the start of a joke. The fact that she asked me that made me laugh hysterically so I really don't ever have to know the punch line! I think I'll dedicate this Texas Santa to her. Love ya Theresa! Isn't it time for you to come HOME?
Now how would you adorn Santa to reflect your location? I'd love to see your creations!
